Background Blitz: Temple - VOTING!
« on: 07 Jan 2020, 22:03 »
TEMPLE


Photos from: ShowHide
Temple of Ramesses II; Pantheon, Rome; Temple of Kukulcan.


Your job is to create a background that features a temple. It can be of any religion (either real or made up) or time period (in the past, present or future -- even a ruin!). As long as it's recognizable as a temple.

Deadline: 22th January 2020.

Voting:

Concept: your background should tell us something about the place you have depicted.
Playability: does it have clearly defined walkable areas, things to interact with, etc?
Artistic Execution: does the image convey the wanted atmosphere? What's the feeling of the place?

Good luck! :cheesy:

I guess I got the first entry here.

So here's a simple yet spooky temple to a long forgotten death god.  Or something.

Er... yeah.

Nice entry, DBoyWheeler! I imagine it would look pretty cool with the animated flames casting their light on the columns.

I was considering animating the flames, but then decided it might take longer than I would've liked.

Googled churches and blundered upon Stave Churches. Made an attempt at one as a background:



Off the forum, CassieBSG made a number of constructive suggestions. I implemented a number of them, but not all of them. Any faults here are mine. It's modeled in Anim8or, and rendered in Bryce.

Edit: Playing with the fog in Bryce and created this image:



The fog would generate problems in a game, but I thought the image worth passing along.

@jwalt Man... I could so see zombies rising up a la King's Quest IV in this setting... especially if it's at night.

I like both (though still not sold on the green gutter  :P)
Why would it cause problems? It's just begging for a second screen after going by that porch and getting more details on the buildings.
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

jwalt: I want to explore that church and its surroundings! And the fog adds so much mystery to the place.

The foggy version is definitely my favorite. It reminds me of Silent Hill.

Only a week left!

Me too! It reminds me of Silent Hill 2 cemetery, near the start of the game.

I like your entry, Racoon!
It has all the elements for an adventure! A mysterious temple in the jungle, an animal that (I imagine) is somehow connected to the temple, a clear entrance and walkable areas, several puzzles possibilities... Really nice!

Oh, this temple reminds me of when we built stuff out of sugar cubes as kids. Nice colors and composition!

Great background, Jack! Fantastic colours and lightning. I love those green/blue-ish shadows on the dunes.
And I want to explore that temple!

Thanks, both.

I see some changes I'd like to make now, but overall it came out quite nice.

@Jack Cool!  Makes me think of that desert world from Super Mario 64.  And that might be a good thing.
